    That's a cracker rig for someone, that 600yrd group shows your 100yrd one should be a ragged hole as you should get with reloads.

    Would there be any interest if I split the scope and rifle?
    $750 for the scope, $650 for the rifle and burris rings?

    No dis respect but its overpriced and thats why no ones buying it. The scope you can buy for 749 brand new from a shop up north with the free cds, if your cds has been used then you can buy a brand new Vx3i 3.5-10-40 for 649 from the same store without the cds. If this is the older Vx3 model and not the new improved glass VX3i model its worth even less secondhand so the scope worth about 450ish tops without the free cds secondhand or 550- with and thats if its in top condation. just saying if you didnt know that shopping around you can buy good scopes a hell of a lot cheaper new from stores within NZ than what the rip off HnF tries to sell them for(899). Unforturely the Vx3 were around 1100 dollars but leupold has bought the price down with the new improved glass model Vx3i and retails alot less so selling a secondhand Vx3 you going to lose money,

    Deer 243. If you really wanted to help this sale, probably would have been better off pming the seller rather than posting publicly. Have a look at Stuarts post, he thinks its great value.

    Yeah, get your point but just stating the facts and see, stuart thinks its great at 1300, better than the 1600 so i prob have helped him to get a sale at some stage . Theres just alot of people out there that dont know that the VX3 was around 1100 but Leupold has reduced the price down for the new Vx3i model (where you pick one up for 749) and the glass is certainly better. Vx3 secondhand now are worth nothing more than half price or less , its just the market .
